Few may have heard of the John Tradescants, father and son of the late 1500s-1600s who worked for a series of patrons supervising some of the most notable gardens of the 17th century: Prudence Leith-Ross remedies this omission with The John Tradescants: Gardeners To The Rose And Lily Queen. Of particular interest to gardeners, besides the fascinating history and biographies of the two, are discussions of the plants introduced by them, with their original plant lists paired with modern botanical names.
